Lightbulb "Mr. or Mrs. Irrelevant"



Okay, I know there's many out there who still don't have 2.5, and are VERY unhappy about it, but besides being patient....at this point, what can you do?

Sure, you can bitch and moan and gripe here on the boards, call TiVo CSR's and plead (which won't do anything), but the bottom line is, ya gotta wait.

So why not have a little fun with this?

So how 'bout this: The very *last* person to get the 2.5 upgrade (this can be qualified by serial number) can win the "Mr./Mrs. Irrelevant" award...just like they do it for the last drafted player in the NFL!

Fly 'em out to TiVo HQ's, put 'em up in a nice hotel with access to a limo (a CSR driving them around in their '98 Taurus), a nice dinner with Mr.'s Barton and Ramsey, and then, getting taken out to an evening movie with RB (*he* buys the popcorn!). Hek, maybe he'd even take you to the zoo!

A little "Mr./Mrs. Irrelevant" trophy or plaque would be a nice touch, along with a "life size" TiVo doll! Top it off with a nice Laurel, and "Hardy handshake" and voila! Youse got yerselves a nice little pkg for being the very last picked!

Hey...it's somethin' to shoot for (and it certainly beats the "goat" someone else had mentioned)!

~If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed?~

If you have two DTiVos and one has already gotten 2.5, but the second is the last one to get it, are you disqualified?

You can all get behind me (or is it in front of me in this case?) because this prize is mine!
